College Discovery Works

We help our students with problems that might interfere with them staying in school and focusing on their schoolwork. The numbers show that College Discovery students have much higher rates of staying in school, finishing their associate’s degrees and moving on to a bachelor’s degree than students who do not have this support.

We Have the Experience

College Discovery has helped thousands of students over the years years. CUNY TV created a short video about College Discovery on our 50th anniversary—you will hear from some of our CD graduates and see what they are doing now.
